I'm sure some of you already know about this and may have even seen this show before. It's called "Knit One, Purl Two" and it starts on DIY today. I have my DVR set to record. I hope it's good!

I totally forgot about this show...I think it's been off the air for a while. I have to check the diy site to see if they're new episodes!

It's not a new show. It's been around a while. I never thought I would dislike a knitting show, but this one is sooooo boring. :wall:

Thanks for mentioning this! I've seen it before as there are only about 5 episodes and the DIY website doesn't have any new ones listed. I have to agree w/Silver that it wasn't all that interesting....... That said, they did a Fan & Feather Baby Blanket that I reallly liked and have been planning to do for my sister's baby, so I'll be sure to DVR that episode!

Don't feel bad, I've thought the same thing about some of those Knitty Gritty episodes. :roll:

Interestingly enough, that's the one episode that really caught my attention too. That blanket was just gorgeous.

My boys make fun of me too! I PVR all the KG shows and K1P2 for this week. Its been on before and I did find it kinda boring. But knitting is knitting!

My husband makes fun of me and Knitty Gritty too. I'm usually watching it taped in bed while I'm massaging his temples at bedtime. He laughs when he hears her say the show name, or "knit on", or use adjectives like "hot", "sexy" or "awesome" to describe the project.

He REALLY laughed when he saw the lingerie show. It wasn't his idea of sexy lingerie. :heart: LOL! :roflhard:

He doesn't like me watching KG while I'm giving a massage, says I don't do it nearly as well as if I'm watching an X-Files episode. :shrug: I can't imagine why!

What I really like about the shows are the tips the guests provide. For me, it's not so much about the specific projects as the things I have either read about here or read in a pattern but just didn't "get" beforehand.

BTW, KG is pretty hokey, at times. I cringe every time I hear the word "Knitsters." :ick:

Best tip I saw on KG was the needle size on your swatch -- when doing the first couple rows of a swatch, do spaced YO equal to your needle size -- e.g. size 7, do 7 spaced out YOs. That way you instantly know what needle size your swatch was done in.

I mute it before she can say "Are you ready to get down to the knitty gritty of knitting xyz?" Ugh. For some reason, THAT annoys me.

I don't get DIY :pout: I think HGTV should have a knitting show!!

Feel blessed, I have none! :pout: My mom tapes KG for me. But I must say I don't miss the shows, I get much more from this board! :muah:

I've never seen any knitting shows before. I guess they just don't have them here :verysad:

That one irritates me too. KG can get pretty goofy, but it's a lot more entertaining than Knit One, Purl Two. *snore* Edith is a total bore as a host and her guests act so stupid sometimes. :doh: The ONLY redeeming quality is that she has knitting celebrities on sometimes.

Man, was I disappointed! :tap: First of all, I could barely understand Edith's accent, and that poor assistant just sitting next to her! She looked so bored!!! I will continue to tape the shows, though. I might get at least one good idea out of it!

The one sitting directly next to her? She is an actress. Marina Sirtis. I was so surprised to see her there. I thought the show was awful. I think we could have made a better show with my video camera. Yikes!

I've seen it before. Only five episodes in total. I am really looking forward to the baby blanket.

Arielluria

I liked the episode where they were knitting with 2 skeins at once, both color A, then changed one of the skeins to color B, then, the 2nd to color B. It gave a nice gradient effect. Anyone know which episode that is?

I can't stand her accent either.

Arielluria - that's the baby blanket episode.....I loved that soft colorwash effect and the fans...
